Photographer's Note

Looking like a Hollywood movie set, the sprawling Forbidden City, in Beijing, is now open to the Public. Tianamen Square is beyond the rooftops, on the horizon. From 'travellerspoint.com':


"The Forbidden City, located in Beijing, was the home of the Emperor and the Imperial Chinese government for almost five centuries. Orginally built in the Yuan dynasty by the Mongolians it had a major face lift during the Ming dynasty to look like the palaces it does today. This is one of the most amazing palaces in the world, with thousands of rooms facing dozens of major courtyards. Remember to take some time to relax and enjoy the nice gardens, explore the side chambers that few visitors go to see, and walk on the royal highway down the center of the Forbidden City."
